The Road Warrior

Our European branch of the family are enjoying the sunshine and thunderstorms of Southwest Florida.  Vlad, Natasha and Masha arrived last night in Fort Myers.  After some initial confusion on the Czarina's part, she finally found them at the airport and their 13 hour journey from Riga was over.
Traveling across the Atlantic with a 3 and a half year old can take a toll on even the toughest parents.  It didn't take Vlad and Natasha long to find a comfortable position on our couch.  Meanwhile that left the Czarina free to do what she enjoys best which is being a doting grandmother.
As you can see Masha handled the lengthy trip a little better than mom and dad.  At last report the first full day in Florida was spent hitting the outlet malls and Wal-Mart.  The Czarina proudly reported that Masha insisted that grandmother handle all stroller duties.

  1. What a cutie! Isn't it crazy how kids can fly across an ocean and still have the energy of a hurricane?
